|The perfect Doner|
I feel like the luckiest man alive at the moment as I've discovered Cyprus Mangal just round the corner from my new gaff and I can already see that it may be the cause of my early death. Hardens says “200 cab drivers can’t be wrong” and I'm inclined to agree with them.
Inside this rather unassuming looking restaurant and take-away hides something amazing, the charcoal grill belches and billows with smoke as the meat is cooked before your eyes. The Doner is what I headed for though, a good one is well worth its weight in chilli sauce!
Unlike its cheaper cousins where the meat is one homogeneous lump, the Doner at Cyprus Mangal is clearly defined cuts of meat. I love just watching the meat spinning, like a pole dancer stuck in a tanning booth the fat dripping off only adding to the temptation.
Stick this all in a decent wrap, that’s toasted ever so lightly on the charcoal grill and thrown together with some good salad and Chilli sauce and you've got a little taste of heaven.
A good Kebab is street food at its best and Cyprus Mangal for me hits the nail on the head and at £5.50 the pricing is spot on as well. I’ll be back soon and you should to...
